The Best Restaurants in Rosemary Beach, Florida
Amavida Coffee & Tea
Serving organic, fair-trade coffee, Amavida offers the perfect way to start off your day (or week!) of fun in the sun: a dose of caffeine, a fluffy pastry, and lingering patrons ready to shoot the breeze.
A classic barefoot beach joint, Cowgirl Kitchen is a neighborhood favorite. The Carolina tacos, the best of Southern BBQ wrapped in a fluffy tortilla, best demonstrate the local haunt’s laidback fusion of American and Mexican cuisines. Kick back, sip on a marg, and enjoy the Gulf view.
Edward’s Fine Food & Wine
Al fresco dining is always on the menu at Edward’s, so snag a table in the courtyard, where there’s often live music playing. Also on the menu: An impressive wine list and all the seafood—grouper, snapper, and scallops—you can eat.
Havana Beach Bar and Grill
La Crema Tapas & Chocolate
Sophisticated and cozy, La Crema does Spanish-inspired small plates right: paella, empanadas, tostadas, and, of course, plenty of chocolate. (Translation: Don’t skip dessert here.) Try the fondue, chocolate soup, or thick-sipping chocolate—because you can’t go wrong with warm, melty confections.
Pescado Seafood Grill & Rooftop Bar
Watch the sunset from Pescado’s rooftop patio as you enjoy your pick of clams, mussels, or lobster. Dinner and a Gulf view? Sign us up.
Right off Rosemary Beach’s Central Square, Restaurant Paradis has a menu that changes seasonally, though quality Gulf seafood, like the wasabi-pea encrusted tuna pictured here, is always a staple. Dine early—sit in the main dining room, patio, or full-service lounge—to take advantage of the primo dinner special: $10 off all entrées between 5:00 and 5:45.
Southside Slice Pizzeria
The best way to enjoy the surf and turf pizza—our favorite—from Southside Slice is by grabbing a pie for the sand. This tucked-away little pizza joint also serves sandwiches, salads, beer, and wine (in beach-friendly cans!).
